After getting the chores done around the house we packed up a picnic dinner and headed out to Eagle Island State Park. We have gone to this park for years and love it. It is close to home and is just a beautiful park.The waterslide is great fun too!You can buy 10 rides for$5 or unlimited rides for$10. The tickets don't expire and we had saved the tickets from last year so the kids got a few rides a piece, which was plenty as it wasn't all that hot! Then they were off to the lake to swim some more.After grabbing some towels we were off to do some geocaching. The kids love the treasure hunt! Eagle Island has 14 caches and we found a good one.
Every cache is different. Some just have a log book that you sign. Others have stuff to trade. This cache was full of kid-friendly stuff to trade but we didn't bring our trading stuff with us so we just signed the book and re-hid the cache.The walk around the lake was beautiful. We have been to this park for many years like I mentioned in the beginning, but we have never walked around the lake! It is a nice walk, even with a stroller on dirt paths. The scenery is just gorgeous and the surroundings quite peaceful too.
